2:30pm Pacific / 4:30pm Central / 5:30pm EST
Topic: Interpreting Taboos: Sex, Religion, Death, And Manifestations of Mental Disorders
Presenter
: Marisa Gillio, MA, CMI
Offers:  0.15 IMIA CEUs

Interpreting taboo subjects, unveiling their hidden meaning, contextualizing intonation, and determining cultural differences during the interpreting session will challenge interpreters in their own assumptions and automatic responses.

This session aims to familiarize skilled interpreters with myths, biases, and paradigms in settings of various difficulties. It will help seasoned interpreters apply effective interventions and actions to convey the original meaning in its fullest sense so that the clinical importance of the session is preserved. We will include real-life scenarios to practice interpreting sexual abuse (both victims and offenders), death, religious rituals, and manifestations of mental disorders in order to delineate standards of practice applicable to challenging situations in advanced settings.

Participants will have the opportunity to exchange experiences in an open forum, rehearse specific protocols, and acquire skills with increased awareness, mindful interventions, and greater knowledge of the cultural factors affecting all parties in the encounters. The presentation will be presented in English, but with examples and terminology in Spanish.

Marisa Gillio, MA, CMI, worked for almost four years at Yale-New Haven Hospital providing language access to Spanish-speaking patients. She is currently the CEO of My Language Link, a company that believes that respecting the interpreter’s role is the best way to respect patients’ rights. She also created a partnership with the International Institute at Yale University and with refugee agencies in Connecticut to train refugees to work as interpreters for their own communities. It is a 60-hour program called Medical Interpreter and Cultural Broker Training. She also teaches medical Spanish at Connecticut University and at Yale University School of Medicine to doctors and medical students who are interested in providing equality of health care.
